Sarah Dashew - "Roll Like a Wheel" (audio) (premiere)

Tejano, gospel, and West Coast pop converge on the title track from Dashew's new album.

Singer-songwriter Sarah Dashew releases her new album Roll Like a Wheel on 22 January, and it is an exploration of tejano, gospel, blue-eyed soul, and Laurel Canyon folk rock all in one. You can hear all those elements on the gentle and gorgeous title track.

"Roll Like A Wheel is the culmination of my musical history thus far," Dashew says. "It takes all my life and sounds from childhood to now, wraps it up in a package of Los Angeles flavor, and spins it into a journey of soul and spirit/ Joy and healing. Reflection and anticipation. And all that comes down to love.”
